About the NHCC

National Hispanic Cannabis Council is a purpose-driven nonprofit organization, created by progressive thought leaders in the cannabis business to address the current underrepresentation of U.S. Hispanics participating in the Cannabis Industry, to demystify the health and wellness power of cannabis, and to break down the long held cultural taboos towards Cannabis in the Hispanic Community.
